Yannic Kilcher explains this white paper on SingularityNET.

Big Tech is currently dominating the pursuit of ever more capable AI. This happens behind closed doors and results in a monopoly of power.

SingularityNET is an open, decentralized network where anyone can offer and consume AI services, and where AI agents can interlink with each other to provide ever more sophisticated AI, with the goal to create a singularity that’s beneficial for humanity. This video takes a look at the basics behind SingularityNET and some of its core components.

In this episode of Data Driven, Frank and Andy speak with Peter Voss about Artificial General Intelligence, Personalizing Personal Assistants, and Motorcycles.

Elon Musk has warned us that AI and in particular a digital super intelligent AI might render humanity extinct.

We should therefore proceed very carefully in the development of AI systems. One of the solutions for the AI control problem proposed by Elon Musk, is the integration of AI with the human brain through a brain-computer interface. That is one of the reasons why he founded Neuralink, a company focused on the development of implantable brain–machine interfaces.

[]

Neuralink’s BMI technology might be able to overcome the biological limits of our minds and could even expand our intelligence.The symbiosis between AI and humans, may greatly benefit our species. It may also help humanity to expand out into space. In spite of these possibilities. Musk said that he sees the creation of digital superintelligences as a great risk to the existence of humanity, but he also thinks that we must nevertheless pursue its development.

On AiRR interviewed me recently and asked what my “one word” to program an AGI (Artificial General Intelligence) would be.

The word is “#Exist”a great talk with Frank Lavigne a Data and AI Architect from Microsoft Corp. We spoke about the harmony between the nature and Artificial General Intelligence, It was a very fun chat !

On AiRR is a new podcast that talks about a the rise of AGI, artificial general intelligence, in the context of one word.

The discussions are a delight to listen to.

The word is “Responsibility” Artificial General Intelligence, One of the very important principles is going to be responsibility interms of A.I. Ethics and also when it comes to people working in A.I. ! The AGI is bound to be responsible and that is what Roldan and Rupesh speak about in this episode with Michelle Zhou CEO and Co Founder of Juji.io The matter of Ethics in A.I. is very serious!
